How to create a development build with aab extension?

I’m creating a development build with the command eas build --profile development --platform android and the end result is always an app in apk format but I want an app in aab format compatible with play story. how do I do that?

Hi @piratymoura

You can try buildType, but whether you’ll be able to submit it to the Play Store, I’m not sure.

buildType will not work, as described in the linked documentation developmentClient option overrides buildType value.

If you want to have a debug build that produces AAB, then your only option is to set “gradleCommand” option to “:app:bundleDebug”. But as wodin already mentioned, I never tested it, but I doubt that you will be able to upload debug build to the play store.
